Ethnographic Encounters Workshop 4 November 2015

Jota 3 Sarah Beeken Please join us for the Ethnographic Encounters Workshop on 4 November 2015. Book your place now:

The workshop will present the Ethnographic Encounters project, and will highlight the ways in which ethnography is used within Modern Languages programmes across the UK. We would especially like to invite anyone currently using ethnographic practice with language learners and those using materials from the previous LARA (Language and Residence Abroad) project to come share their experiences. The workshop will also be an opportunity to look forward at how we can develop the teaching and use of ethnography in Modern Languages programmes and the residence abroad for the future.

The day will include a roundtable discussion with keynote speakers, presentations from English in French LS 1students who participated in the Southampton project, and interactive workshops designed to promote discussion about the future of the year abroad, focussing on the relationship between intercultural learning, language learning and ethnography.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Professor Celia Roberts, King’s College London
  • Dr Robert Crawshaw, University of Lancaster
  • Dr Heidi Armbruster, University of Southampton
  • Dr Patricia Romero De Mills, University of Southampton
